I no longer serve in the military. I spent 6 years in, and am now out. I use this name online for continuity...too many people know me as this name, and I don't want to go through the hassle of coming up with another.
I am what and who I am. I make no apologies for it, unless I'm wrong. If you don't like it, or can't accept it, you can find another friend. Accept me with open arms, and I'll be one of the most caring people you'll ever find. I take trust seriously. I strive to be worthy of the trust given to me, and expect no less in return. Betray that trust and you'll be fighting a long journey to regain it.
I'm an introvert. I enjoy friends once I make them, but I'm not always the most open to strangers. It takes a lot for me to approach someone I don't know, and it almost always feels awkward to me. Because I take trust so seriously, it can take time to earn it. Once earned, I'm much more open. I treat my friends like most people treat family. I enjoy being social with them. I enjoy the time I spend with them. I strongly believe your family of choice is stronger than your family of blood. You choose them to be family, and continue that choice despite the troubles it may bring you. Choice is stronger than something forced upon you. I have my family of choice, and I value them above all else.
I never really look for a relationship. I let them develop when they flow into my life. Life's a journey, and sometimes people are meant to share that journey with you. Some for longer periods then others. Part of the reason I'm poly is I believe one should be free and open to letting these relationships develop when they chance into our lives.
